DoD Server Rules


DoD servers are meant to be FUN.

This means they are not a forum for:

  • GRIEFING1
  • BIGOTRY
  • RACISM
  • MISOGYNY

Cheating is not acceptable

This applies to regular players AND administrators.

  • No glitching
  • No duping
  • No exploiting

General Rules

→ Rule Number 1: Don’t be a Dick! ←

  • Safe zone camping: Camping near Safe Zones is prohibited.
  • Building a base so that you can engage players entering or exiting a safe zone is considered camping and may result in your base being removed without compensation.
  • Spawn zone camping: Camping spawn zones - from any distance and especially from bases is prohibited and may result in a ban.
    • Similar to Safe Zone Camping this may result in your base being removed without compensation. 
  • Do NOT impersonate staff.
  • Admin Events: Do not engage, block or interfere with an admin event if you are not part of it. If you are not part of the event you may spectate the event (but you still could get killed).
  • Group size limits may be placed on groups that are causing problems on the server for other players. Big groups are ok, just don't use your group size to dominate the server
    preventing other groups/people from enjoying the game. This is up to Admin discretion.
  • English only in Side Chat, please
  • Abusing admins will not be tolerated. Repeated abuse of admins will result in a penalty such as being kicked or banned.
  • If you genuinely think an Admin is abusing, record with video, come to the TeamSpeak and talk to Vistor or Terror_Nova. Do not start spamming the chat.

Game Play

  • Anyone causing unnecessary drama, griefing or being abusive in game will be kicked from server. 
  • DoD servers are MILITARIZED. This means that there is a high level of military-grade weapons. For a noob this will mean you will need to spend a lot of time:
    • Scrounging - weapons and vehicles and selling them to increase your pop tabs and respect 
    • Dying - recognize that there will be players who have spent a great deal of time on the servers and have a lot of pop tabs and respect and can afford to buy the high powered
      weapons. Remember: You may have played Exile on other servers but in starting on DoD servers you are a noob. Also remember that everyone knows where the good loot spawns
      so do not complain about dying.
  • Spam Killing”: Repeated mass killing of players with attack helicopters or any other means (e.g., completed missions) is not permitted. This rule is strictly enforced.
  • Combat Logging: Combat logging is not permitted. This includes both if you are engaged with another player or AI.
  • Vehicle towing/sling loading for combat is prohibited, for example:
    • Do not tow a repair vehicle to keep yourself from being blown up. 
    • Do not tow an ammo truck to keep yourself from running out of ammo. 
    • Shooting from a sling loaded armed vehicle under a helicopter.
  • Do not buy ammo or fuel or repair trucks and base them in a safe zone. They will be deleted.
  • Players are expected to leave their bases for game play (not including defending your base - that is obviously allowed): 
  • Do not engage missions or players at missions from on top of your base. If you want to do a mission, go do it. 
  • Do not engage players with armed vehicles from the top of your base. You are permitted to engage from ground level (inside your perimeter walls, on the ground).

Base Raiding/Attacking

  • No logging out in enemy base at any time.
  • No dropping vehicles on bases from helicopters (or kamikaze attacks).
  • Players must disengage from a base raid at least 5 minutes before restart and be 500m away from the base being raided. Firing at the base is not allowed. (Raiders need to keep track of
    time)
  • No raiding Admin bases. (Admins can't raid your base either)*
  • Engaging Admin bases in PVP/Warfare is allowed. (You cannot raid but you can kill admins in their bases)*

Safe Zone Rules

  • Do not steal from another player or vehicle in the safe zone.
  • Do not destroy vehicles in the safe zone.
  • If someone steals your vehicle outside the safe zone, you cannot steal it back inside the safe zone.
  • Using the Safe Zone to retreat from combat is not allowed.
  • Do not destroy any trader buildings.
  • Do not troll or spam while in the safe zone.
  • If a player dies in the safezone do not loot their body.
  • Safe Zone Exception - all vehicles left in the safe zone automatically unlock at server restart. For the first 5 minutes after restart these vehicles are also “fair game” for being sold.

Armed Aircraft (including Helicopters) & Special Circumstance

Initiating PVP using an armed aircraft is against the rules, unless they shoot at you first. Attack choppers and jets are on the server to be used against AI unless you are first engaged by a player on the ground. Breaking this rule will result in temporary ban on first offense, then permant ban on second offense.

SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCE: Initiating an air attack against anti-air tanks is allowed. If the aircraft destroys a non-anti air tank that player is subject to discipline.

If a player in a squad or a family member is attacked by a ground player, and one of the players in the group is in attack helicopter, they are still prohibited from using that armed aircraft to attack the group's enemy unless the armed aircraft is fired upon first. (If they want to help their squad member, land the attack chopper and attack the enemy on foot.)

If you are killed by an opponent, that doesn't mean you can grab your armed aircraft to re-engage the opponent. The opponent killed you before you were using your armed aircraft. You must be engaged by an opponent while using your armed aircraft first.

Note: If you decide that you will bait yourself while flying an armed aircraft - waiting to be engaged so you can attack - you run the risk of an admin using their discretion on how to deal with the situation. Rule #1: Don't be a Dick!


Territories and Building

  • Only two (2) territories are allowed per group.
  • Your flag must be protected by 3 walls, 1 door and a roof (basically a room), the door must be accessible for players to grind. You may not cover your flag base with any construction
    item. How difficult you make it leading up to the flag room is your choice (e.g., the flag room may be inside a main building but all walls must be accessible).*
  • The base of your flag MUST exposed. The base of the flag CANNOT be placed below the ground*
  • The maximum building height is 25 meters. There will be no compensation if offending base parts are removed by an Admin.
  • No blocking roads with anything. 
  • All distances are measured from the outside radius of the listed circles.
  • You must be more than the distances below.
  • From a spawn zone - 1000 meters 
  • From a safe zone     - 1000 meters 
  • Non Safezone Trader - 1000 meters *
  • From an airfield - 1000 meters 
  • From a Major Military Area - 1000 meters
  • The circle markers on the map are a guide as to where you cannot build. Building just outside these markers does not mean your base is legal, still check the distance you are
    from certain areas as you could still be too close.*
  • You may not build in high-loot areas such as military bases.
  • Remember: If you are in doubt about where you are building contact an administrator
  • Extended Base Mod: You can only have a limit of 20 per base and all building pieces are to be placed at ground level and not floating. Ammo/refuel crates are allowed to be high in your base as long as they are not floating.*
  • Building in Debug: Done at your own risk. Do not complain if your base disappears.
  • The owner reserves the right to delete base parts that have been removed from the prices list/loot tables. (e.g., a television, lawn chairs, etc.)*
  • You may not place any storage item (e.g., safe) outside of you territory.

Playing Tips

  • Exile / ArmA Bugs: There will be no compensation for items lost due to Exile / ArmA bugs nor admin teleports for your character.
  • Compensation requests must be accompanied with video evidence. Screenshots are not acceptable. The decision of the admin is final. (i.e., Do not whine.)
  • Parking on wood or concrete floors is done at your own risk *
  • Random Spawn Vehicle: Random spawned vehicles will be deleted after restart unless you purchase a code lock for them and claim ownership.
  • Territory protection money must be paid within seven (7) days.*

Epoch

  1. All the rules from above apply to Epoch except the ones that are for Exile only.
  2. Base are captured with a frequency jammer and not a flag.
  3. Bases despawn over time rather than a set period of time. Check the health of each base part to determine when detreoriation will start to occur. 
  4. There will be NO destruction of base parts with attack helis, tanks, APCs, or rocket launchers. If you want to raid a base, do it the right way.
  5. The rule regarding attack helis attacking players on the ground without being engaged first also applies to our Epoch server.

= Exile only rule

1. Greifing: A griefer is a player in a multiplayer video game who deliberately irritates and harasses other players within the game, using aspects of the game in unintended ways. A griefer derives pleasure primarily or exclusively from the act of annoying other users, and as such is a particular nuisance in online gaming communities, since griefers often cannot be deterred by penalties related to in-game goals. This creates a slight division between griefing and cheating, since cheating is most often done with intent of winning the game and thus is discouraged by in-game penalties.
